The 300 Spartans (1962) Blu-Ray
They are strong. They are hard. They are Spartans. When an invading army of millions under the command of Persian King Xerxes sets its sights on Greece, one by one the kings of the Aegean nations surrender or fall to Xerxes' rule. Only King Leonidas (Richard Egan) of Sparta refuses to bow. Unfortunately due to politics in Sparta, King Leonidas is able to only rally 300 soldiers from his personal guard to face the Persians. These 300 Spartans are the last hope for Greece, for freedom and for the future of Western Civilization!
Leonidas intends to hold the Persians at a narrow pass called Thermopylae until more warriors arrive. Thus begins the battle in which the 300 Spartans and 700 Greek volunteers held off 250,000 Persians for one week until every one of the Spartans was killed.
